leadership in the house. speaker john boehner and paul ryan voted yes, but house majority leader eric cantor who led a brief last-minute charge against the deal and kevin mccarthy voted no. earlier i had a chance to visit to politico's congressional reporter. we talked about how the bill got through the house and the political ramifications of sealing the deal. hughes republicans were earlier considering a deal with more spending cuts. it was different than what the senate passed. what ended up happening? kwhie did republicans change their minds? >> basically they knew if they tried to make any changes that the senate had already sent over to them it would greatly prevent getting it done. harry reid, the senate majority leader said it's going to be very, very tough. a lot of them were tired. the senators were already home and they were waiting for the house to just sign off on it. so any changes, especially major changes, would have, could have really, really scuttled this thing from passing and getting to president obama's desk very quickly. >> is there any real winner in this scenar

health. but the radical fringe in control of the republican party is out there -- paul ryan was on the floor of the house of representatives not six months ago railing about the fact that women routinely lie about their health just in order to get that abortion. that's not where the people of this country are. and i think that thanks to governor ultrasound, mcdonnell of virginia, and thanks to ken cuccinelli, who wants to be the next republican governor of virginia, who is absolutely another governor ultrasound, i think people's attention has been sort of focused on this, and people are turned off by it. i think that if democrats want to continue winning elections, they will continue to put this issue forward and be very open and transparent about it and say, you know, we don't see why women's health should be restricted. there is not a single aspect of men's health that gets restricted on ideological grounds. we're not going to do it to women. >> i think your hypothesis there bolstered by the fact that governor mcdonnell, governor ultrasound saw fit to pass this -- sign these regu

act generated $700 billion over ten years of savings in medicare. did mitt romney and paul ryan say that's exactly what we mean when we talk about stabilizing the entitlements or reforming the entitlements? no. they attacked him for those cuts and said we'll put them back in. so the hypocrisy is very deep. bob is absolutely right. this is a little economicy, but do this thought experiment. suppose you found an honest republican, and there are some, and you said we can balance the budget if we collect 25% of gdp in revenue and spend 25% of gdp in outlays. those balance 0u9 but those percentages are considerably higher than what we usually spe spend. they would run from you in horror. they're not interested in balancing the budget. they're interested in shrinking the government. however, when it comes to plans, krugman is partially right. there are republicans who talk about things like block granting medicaid, who talk about premium support. in every case what do those do? they go after poor people while they're cutting the heck out of taxes for reach pimm. >> concern about the debt

, more moderate than paul ryan. but any one of them right now is almost sort of a slave to this group of hard right people. and when you talk to that group, not only are they totally out of the mainstream, they don't listen. they think they have the fountain of all wisdom, that compromise is a dirty word. that's what we're seeing with the debt ceiling. this will be a big test. if president obama follows through on what he says he's going to do, we're not going to negotiate on debt ceiling. you guys, if you want to come in the room and say we'll only raise the debt court of appealing if you cut this, this and. this we should say leave the room. if you want to let the debt ceiling lapse, that's on your back. i don't believe the republican party would, even though these 50 or 75 would. but if we don't negotiate with them and isolate them, then -- then we can achieve something. and force in a certain sense the more mainstream republicans not to go along. >> seeing that coalition vote which eventually you had on the fiscal cliff side in the house with essentially all of the democrats and s
